If I Ain't Got Emotions

This is another tune I've been working on whilst GYBO was down - thankfully it's back now. This uses Alicia Keys vocals from 'If I Ain't Got You' and the instrumental from Destiny's Child's version of the Bee Gees tune 'Emotions'. The two songs are similar in lots of ways and this made a natural pairing.

You Should Let me Give You Something

This tune uses the instrumental from James Morrison's 'You Give Me Something' and the vocals from Mario's @You Should Let Me Love You'. Another A+B , simple mash up but works quite well IMHO!!

The final version is now up

Get it here:

You Should Let Me Give You Something

Let me know what you think.

Checked into


this morning and to my utter surprise was informed (on one of the threads) that I had been mentioned in an article about GYBO in yesterdays Guardian newspaper!! The complete article has some great links, see Guardian Unlimited for the complete article.

The bit that (briefly) mentions me (for the idle amongst us!) :

'Best for mash-ups: Get Your Bootleg On

The mash-up scene isn't as hot now as it was at the beginning of the decade, but with virtually anyone now able to mess about with music editing software on their home PC, there are more amateur mash-up artists than ever. Many of these bedroom bootleggers congregate on Get Your Bootleg On, a vibrant community site with more than 14,000 registered members. Every day, budding producers post links to MP3s of their latest masterpiece in the Bootlegs forum. Some of them are terrible, but the quality on GYBO is generally high; as a vague rule, the more replies to a posting, the better the track tends to be. To keep its members inspired, GYBO also runs regular challenges to create a bootleg around a particular theme - be it the Charlatans or dancehall/reggae- which is where many of the best mash-ups surface.

Not sure if mine falls into the 'Some of them are terrible' category or not!! You'll have to download some and make up your own minds!!!!
